Native Studies at SRHS

The goal of E2-Textiles is that students will learn about Native ways of knowing about the world and be able to integrate this knowledge with a high-tech project of their own making.  Students are also encouraged to think critically about the use of technology and what makes something a “Native technology.”
Seventh and eighth grade students in Mr. Reed’s Native Studies 1 Class have been engaged in making light up sweatshirts as part of their coursework.  Working with researchers from Arizona State University and the University of Pennsylvania, Mr. Reed incorporates learning about animals, elements, and plants as important components of the Native Studies curriculum.  Students first learn about electricity by creating a simple circuit with a light bulb, a battery, and wire.  Students then choose a design connected to the themes of the course and create a circuitry blueprint that maps out what their circuits will look like.  This is an important step because students begin to integrate the artistic elements of the design with the technical requirements of circuitry.  Then, as a third step, students craft their design using felt, a small, sewable computer, sewable LED lights, and thread that conducts electricity.  Once the circuitry is sewn, students hook their projects up to computers and program them to make the LED lights blink.  As a final step, the design is attached to a hooded sweatshirt with conductive fabric patches.  When the patches are squeezed by the wearer or touched together, the design on the sweatshirt lights
